Hunter Biden’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski will appear on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show on Tuesday night with ‘new allegations’, which sources claim will ‘bury’ the Biden family.
Bobulinski has since early October been pushing the story of his time in business with Hunter Biden, 50, and his claims that Joe Biden was involved in the attempts to make deals.
Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, tweeted: ‘According to a source familiar with the planning, Bobulinski will play recordings of Biden family operatives begging him to stay quiet and claiming Bobulinski’s revelations will “bury” the reputations of everyone involved in Hunter’s overseas deals.’
Bobulinski and Hunter Biden formed a company in 2017, specializing in infrastructure investment. No deals appear to have been completed, and the firm folded in 2018.
Joe Biden had left the White House and was a private citizen at the time.
Nevertheless, he has insisted he and his son never discussed business – which Bobulinski claims is untrue.

Bobulinski held a press conference ahead of the final presidential debate last week, but did not take questions.
On Friday he reportedly spoke to the FBI and handed over three cell phones which he said contained ‘evidence’. He did not say of what.
On Tuesday the former Navy lieutenant’s ‘extended interview’ with Carlson will be aired.
‘Tony Bobulinski says he met with Joe Biden about China,’ Carlson tweeted.
‘The media have suppressed the story, but it’s real and it matters. Voters have a right to know the details.’
Fox News said: ‘In the interview, which will be Bobulinski’s first on camera since coming forward about his business dealings with Biden, Bobulinski will discuss new allegations regarding his relationships with both Hunter and the former vice president.’
It was unclear what the ‘new allegations’ would entail.

On Thursday, ahead of the debate, Bobulinski said: ‘It was made clear to me that Joe Biden’s involvement was not to be made in writing, but only face to face.’
He added: ‘I have no wish to bury anyone.’
Bobulinski is listed as one of the recipients of a May 13, 2017, email detailing their business deal, and he claims that ‘the big guy’ mentioned is a reference to Joe Biden, whom he claims Hunter regularly asked for business advice.
Joe Biden has always insisted he was not involved in Hunter’s numerous business ventures.
Bobulinski’s account of his dealings with Hunter Biden, and his allegations about Joe was provided to the Wall Street Journal in late October.
The Journal began investigating the documents Bobulinski provided, and concluded, in a report published on the night of the debate, October 22, that there was no evidence Joe Biden had any role in their company.
The New York Post had by that point published their own story involving Hunter Biden’s emails, after Rudy Giuliani – Donald Trump’s lawyer – gave the paper a laptop he claimed belonged to Hunter Biden.
The first story, on October 14, claimed that Hunter Biden leveraged his father’s name to secure business deals in Ukraine.
The following day, October 15, the Post published a second story, detailing Bobulinski’s business dealings with Hunter Biden, his uncle Jim – Joe Biden’s brother – and two other men.
Jim wrote a 2017 ‘wish list’ of possible business contacts for their new venture, according to the Post – a list that included prominent Democrats, Republicans, world leaders and international business people.
The list was reportedly sent in an email to Bobulinski, who was attempting with Hunter Biden to set up a failed Chinese investment venture.
Joe Biden is not mentioned in his brother’s emails, the Post reported.

Jim Biden emailed Bobulinski, Hunter Biden and several others on May 15, 2017 with the list of suggested contacts, the paper claimed.
The Bidens and Bobulinski had formed a company to partner with another firm, headed by a Chinese energy tycoon, on ‘global and/or domestic’ projects involving ‘infrastructure, energy, financial services and other strategic sectors,’ the documents obtained by the Post reportedly show.
Jim Biden reportedly recommended they approach Andrew Cuomo, the Democrat governor of New York, and Rick Scott, a Republican who at the time was governor of Florida.
Cuomo was supposedly described as someone actively involved in infrastructure projects in his state.
The email reportedly said he ‘is moving forward with major infrastructure projects such as the long-stalled Tappan Zee Bridge replacement and the much-needed redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport.’
‘His administration has invested nearly $4 billion through the Regional Council and Upstate Revitalization initiatives to jumpstart the economy and support local priorities for development,’ it reportedly added.
Scott was apparently described as a ‘personal friend of my friend Billy Rubin and close to my friend Ken Jenne, former Sheriff of Broward County, FL.’

Also supposedly mentioned in the email was Chuck Schumer, the Democrat senator for New York, who the paper reports was described as having ‘made improving New York’s economy a top priority, bringing affordable air service to Upstate New York and working to successfully retain New York jobs at risk of leaving and attract many new firms to New York.’
Maria Torres-Springer, the head of New York City’s Economic Development Corp., was reportedly described as someone who ‘drives the physical transformation of New York City, completes major infrastructure upgrades, and encourages the creation of new residential and commercial districts.’
Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat senator for New York, and New York’s then-commissioner of economic development, Howard Zemsky, were included, the paper said, as were a number of other officials in Virginia, Minnesota, Florida and California.
Jerry Brown, the then-governor of California, was supposedly described by Jim Biden as a ‘long time friend from his first term as governor’.
His successor, Gavin Newsom, then the lieutenant governor, was reportedly identified as ‘Hunter’s friend.’
A second email was said by Bobulinski to have been sent by Jim Biden to the same people on the same day – May 15, 2017 – titled ‘short list of foreign friends for next phase?’
Among those reportedly mentioned were Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, described as ‘arguably the richest man in the world’ and ‘very friendly.’
‘Mentioning Slim now because he is big into racing and has a Formula I racing team and I know you are headed to the Grand Prix,’ the memo reportedly added.

Others on that list reportedly included the presidents of Colombia and Argentina, and the ‘European Union in general.’
The following day, Hunter Biden, according to the paper, responded to Jim’s email and expressed concern, worrying: ‘that these lists of contacts and strengths are going to come back to haunt us.’
Hunter Biden reportedly suggested the lists ‘could easily serve… as the foundation for the divvying up of territory both geographically and commercially’ by their partner in the joint venture.
‘I may be paranoid but having worked in. [sic] The lobbying industry for years these attempts to create focus at the outset always and I mean always ended in disaster,’ the email says, according to the Post.
‘We should be thinking what we want to focus on and not who knows who as direction for focus in my opinion.’
Trump has seized upon the emails from Bobulinski, and others from a laptop that Hunter Biden took to be repaired, as supposed evidence of the Biden family’s corruption.
Joe Biden during Thursday night’s debate vehemently denied having ever taken any money from foreign governments.
The Biden campaign insist that Trump is attempting to divert attention away from his own shortcomings, and Trump critics have suggested that it is part of a Russian-orchestrated disinformation plot.
On Sunday night, in a 60 Minutes interview, Biden spoke out about the laptop scandal and the emails that have been found detailing plans for business ventures involving China and Ukraine.
Biden said he believed that Giuliani, who has touted the laptop around various media outlets seeking publicity, was being used by Russia.
‘From what I’ve read and know the intelligence community warned the president that Giuliani was being fed disinformation from the Russians,’ Biden said.
‘And we also know that Putin is trying very hard to spread disinformation about Joe Biden.
‘And so when you put the combination of Russia, Giuliani, the president, together – it’s just what it is.
‘It’s a smear campaign because he has nothing he wants to talk about. What is he running on? What is he running on?’
